On Aug. 21, Denver hosted the launch of the “Peter and the Starcatcher” national touring production at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, and CultureWest.Org was there to capture the “starstuff” of the evening.

Guests include actors Joey deBettencourt, Megan Stern and John Sanders; Denver TV host Eden Lane; Disney’s Jack Eldon; and “The Kid” director and producer Eli Gonda and Jason Shuman. “Peter” is the the story of the nameless boy who becomes Peter Pan. “The Kid” is the new Joey McIntyre developmental musical opening Aug. 30 at the Galleria Theatre. For information on “Peter” or “The Kid,” please visit Running time: 5 minutes.
